of pope benedict and some of the charisma of pope john paul ii. >> reporter: in the murky world of vatican politics no clear front-winner to replace benedict has emerged. a church which has come to see its future more and more in the developing world will have to decide whether its next leader should be from there. cardinal peter turkson of ghana is a campaigner for social reform and is often cited as the leading african candidate. but the 64-year-old has already stumbled on the issue of the church's relations with islam and is seen as a risky choice. the highest profile potential candidate from latin america may be the 63-year-old archbishop of sao paolo brazil cardinal odilio pedro scherer but the church has yet to demonstrate it's ready for a south american pope and he's thought to be a long shot. there are long odds as well for cardinal timothy dolan archbishop of new york. but any american candidate would have to overcome the church's traditional reluctance to elect a superpower pope. if the church reverts to an italian, cardinal anglo scola 71-year-old archbishop of milan is a popula

xvi and john paul ii so i don't think we'll see a situation of conflict. >> pelley: why can't the vatican seem to settle on a date for the conclave to begin to select the new pope? >> well, part of it is logistical. we have to wait until the pope actually leaves, which will happen on thursday. and then on friday we begin the period of the sette vacantis, the vacant seat. and this is all regulated within the vatican rules and they will need time, of course, to set up the sistine chapel, to set up the logistical aspects of holding a conclave within itself. and then they will need some time to meet in order to discuss exactly who their preferred candidate will be. so i think if we're looking at a week, that's moving pretty quickly for the vatican. >> pelley: delia gallagher in st. peter's square in rome, thank you so much. what's behind an increase in teen driving deaths? the supreme court takes up a challenge to a landmark civil rights law. and a hot air balloon tragedy when the "cbs evening news" continues. from washington. i have low testosterone. there, i said it. how did i
involve the use of lethal force force. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report. that was john brennan, the president's counterterrorism advisor and he has picked to lead the c.i.a. defending the administration's policy on drone strikes. a key architect of that policy, the same week that the white house has reversed course and agreed to provide a memo authorizing drone use to kill al-qaeda operatives including u.s. citizens abroad. joining us is dan henninger and george d.robinoewritz and dan cominsky. what have we learned about the policy this week. >> i think what we learned was an affirmation what we know about the drone policy. it was stated pretty well by john brennan. the bottom line is the drones are being used to kill al-qaeda or al-qaeda affiliated terrorists in northern pakistan and yemen but nowhere else. that there is a justice department memo laying out the legal justification for the drone attacks. it's not clear to me why the obama administration felt they had to keep that memo secret. it was going to come out eventually anyway but they do have a justification. t
. that the drone attacks are being run by john brennan. >> paul: it coast goes back to the congressional authorization to use military force in the wake of 9/11 and succeeding national defense acts patched by congress. so dorothy, the left really does however, dislike this program or the way it is operated because there was a big assault on brennan in the hearing? >> there was. if the administration had lent townhall and announced the justification, it would still have not diffused the left. >> paul: they want to kill this program? >> they have forever distorted the meaning of due process and accusing the administration and war on terror of violating all due process when in fact due process is elastic theory, it's an elastic justification. if you can't find terrorists you can use alternate means. you don't have to tell who or what you are doing just provide the guidelines. >> paul: and this is wartime decision-making, doing this against enemy combatants, people that have taken up arms in the united states. this isn't somebody in iowa or around the world, hey, we don't like him. you have
minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. john paul dejoria is here and he is the cofounder of paul mitchell systems. he is joining us now from austin, texas. ten dollars an hour. you say yes to that. >> yes. let me explain how. people are talking about increasing wages. for the employer, many employers, they are saying i am raising my payroll 25%. same productivity. i cannot afford it. a lot of people are thinking that way. how do you increase productivity and be able to pay people more money? that is the secret. if somebody is hired, for example, $7.25, whatever they are hard for, you work with them. in three to four months, it is the ramp-up period of time. we will learn the job and how to create sub productivity of what we are doing. our business can have at least 25% more income because we are increasing productivity. if we do end up to 30%, how about $10 an hour. human beings are capable of doing a heck of a lot more. dagen: you are talking about a decision made by the business owner and operator. a private decision. not one mandated by the government. if the government did move it up , if you
to do that. and that's why i think this particular move, very counterproductive. >> senators john paul and john mccain slammed the white house allegedly for leaking the plan on purpose. >> this is the prosecutor pea doing his own plan. it shows me he's really not serious. when they come out and say my way or the highway and if congress doesn't ask be with i'll put it on the desk and say pass it now, that's no way to get it done. but it seems to me to show the president really doesn't want immigration reform. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this races the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another reason to beat up republicans so he can get political advantage in the next election? >> he argued the white house plan and bipartisan negotiations shared some key elements. >> republican, this was leaked. it's also clear that it's incomplete. there's a silver lining in this which is that there are a lot of co commonalities between the two plans. >> was this intention by the white house to pressure congres
to be electing the next pope, and all of the cardinals under 80 were chosen by pope john paul ii or pope benedict, so you will not see a lot of the change, you know, in a lot of the policies, but really once the man becomes pope, anything is possible, because he can do whatever he wants to do. >> and there have been moments where we have seen the popes do extraordinary thing, and obviously vatican ii is the example. and are we at a moment to acknowledge a vatican ii moment, and john paul moment? >> well, the history of the cardinals is like the lightning that stroke the dome a few hours after the pope benedict resigned. anything is possible, but if we could retreat to the essence of pope john the xxiiird who inish y -- initiated the last vatican counsel which so many are not happy with, and we could go back to the people of god and inviting everyone to look to the levels of the signs of the times that is asked by the matthew gospel and point to the needs of the people longing, and longing to know jesus and feel the loving merciless presence in their lives through the understanding of the sufferin
bit? >> well, pope john paul ii a long but toward the end he was very sick. and there were discussions about whether he should resign or not. pope john fall could not do that because this was designed that he was named to be the pope. benedict comes at this in the point of view yes he was elected the pope but there comes the point where you haven't got the stamina and the office of peter is bigger than any individual pope. and i think realizes it's time for someone else to lead the church in ways he simply could not any more. it was his passion he knows and longer than his own person. >> sir, we do appreciate you joining us today. we want to thank you coming to us from rome. you are there teaching this semester. kevin irwin is a professor. thank you for joining us. >> you are very welcome. thank you. >> well, in other news today, wild weather is the other big warning. tornado touches down as people in the northeast try to resume normal routines. in mississippi, that's where that tornado was. turned through three counties leaving more than a dozen injured. the city of hattysburg was hit
by pope john paul ii. now, pope benedict told vatican cardinals that he didn't have the strength to go on. people we spoke to this morning said all of the other popes except one have died in office. why couldn't he? but others were sympathetic. >> i was listening to the catholic radio station and they were saying he wanted to resign even before. right now, he feels this is it. so god bless him. >> reporter: the 85-year-old ally last day of pope will be february 28th. the last time the pope resigned was nearly 600 years ago, when pope gregory xii stepped down in an effort to end the civil war within the church. pope benedict xvi was born in 1927 as joseph ratzinger. he served in the army but deserted and was eventually captured by americans and then released. his decision sets the stage for a new pope to be elected before the end of march. the san francisco archdiocese just opened about a minute ago. we are hoping to speak to someone from there and get reaction on this event. >> all right. tara, you can get more information about the surprise resignation announcement about the pope by goin
remember how pope john paul ii was so young when he was elected. i think he was 56 or 57. a young man. >> he used to go skiing all the time. >> he was elected when he was 78 years old. >> yeah. so we watched him turn into an elderly man that was very frail. remember how long it took, we waited and waited. i can remember i was on a plane when he finally passed. but he didn't -- i mean, he was not healthy at the end and he didn't resign. so that's what i don't really understand, ross, right? >> well, traditionally, they haven't resigned. so -- >> 1415, yeah. >> so he's 2005, he's 86. so that's five, six, seven, eight -- >> i think what we're all dancing around the issue of whether or not there's more to it, right? is that what we're getting at? >> is there something else we don't know about. >> all of them have gotten elderly and they have essentially died in office and that's when they begin to look for a new pope. that is no happening in this case. >> right. you said it would be pure speculation. it's probably best not to specula speculate, at least you filled us in that at this point

to your predecessor, pope john paul ii, this is one evangelical, not a catholic, who has appreciated the firm convictions of the catholic church and the popes who decided the purpose of church was not to be a mere thermometer reflecting the culture of whatever the world happens to believe in a given moment, but rather believes that the church is to be the thermostat that can lead the culture that is prevalent in the world, but whose purpose is to adjust the temperature of the culture to what it ought to be. and for that, i say thank you for faithful service to the bible and to the traditions of god's people. that's a good thing. well, scientists say that the meteor that streaked across the sky on russia friday morning exploded with the force equivalent to the power of an atomic bomb. maybe the shock of the blast, not the leader of the liberal democratic party of russia completely silly. he said those aren't meteorites falling, it's the americans trying out a new weapon.
